Yes, under the circumstances, start from scratch is usually the best way to go.

I had the same problem once on my 5 years old Dell Inspiron running Vista. I could not login at all, not even in Safe Mode. I ended up re-installing the Vista OS.

Since she uses the computer for business, she should start learning the basic of maintaining a computer.
It is a must, not a luxury. If she does not want her business interrupted by something like that.

Reminds me of my old high school classmates. 50 somewhat years later, they all have college degrees. But when it comes to computer, they said " We didn't have computer class in college." And with all the higher education intelligence, they are afraid to learn.
Meanwhile, I self-taught myself in computer and I have less "higher education" than most of them.

At least it's taking about 1 tenth of the time to boot now, it says it's installing bluetooth and a lot of other stuff now.

You will have one heck more than 40 updates to install.
They will come in bunches. Trust me, been there, done that.

Hi

She came and picked up the computer and it's all fixed and her favorites etc are reinstalled.
I didn't have time to do everything I wanted like install CCleaner and Malwarebytes but she's going to come back and get some instructions in computer maintenance, etc.

Anyway all's well that ends well.

Now I've gotta run and meet my wife at her pottery show.

Mike
